Contest Directions: Create images of something that happened in the news during October 27 - November 2, 2008.
Here are some examples of news stories that could be used:
America has just celebrated Halloween - the beloved holiday of all kids and dentists.
Associated Press did quite a lot of homework this week. It investigated and reported that Obama's aunt has been living in USA illegally. Obama responded that he had no knowledge about this and said that the laws should be followed. AP also conducted its own poll and said that Obama backers look cheerful these days, while McCain backers look glum.
